    First Grade

    Teacher. Mrs. Laura Sharkey

    Dear Parents,

           Welcome back to School!  I am very excited to be your child's teacher this year. I am looking forward to beginning a brand new year with our returning students and seeing some new faces who are joining our Academy's First Grade team!   We are going to do lots fun things and of course, lots of learning  along the way.

         Your child will bring home a communication folder each day.  Please check daily for important notices.  On the first day, you will find my Welcome letter, class rules, behavior and homework policies, and other information that will help our year run smoothy. Please                                                 return any forms in a timely manner. It is truly appreciated.

          I hope you had a fabulous summer.  I can't wait to hear all about it from your child.  I am looking forward to meeting you on Back to School night when we will get to know each other better!! 


                                                                            Mrs. Sharkey
